His name brings fire to my belly and piercing pain to my chest. He stole something from me I never knew I wanted. He tried to take me away from Drago by ending my life. I was supposed to be a message; payback for not accepting an offer—a partnership. And although I may be alive, Diaz might have succeeded in ripping Drago from me.
For now, I have to put that behind me and focus on finding the little angel that needs rescuing from the deadliest drug lord Southern California has ever seen.
I never imagined there was anything that would make me cross that thin blue line. But despair and hate and sorrow can blur ones vision so much that the line doesn’t exist anymore. I didn’t ask for this war, but I do plan on ending it—ending him.
An eye for an eye.
I've known his name a long time. You'd have to live under a rock not to know of the heartless and cruel reputation the Acerbi family has established. They are monsters cloaked in suits and ties, or so my colleagues in blue have said. Being on the job, you quickly learn to watch your back, trust no one, and as much as I hate to admit this, sometimes that includes a fellow badge.
But to want to kill your own child for being born? Now that's monstrous. Unjust. And something I will not stand for. I'll take him down before I allow an innocent to be harmed.
Even if that means not only taking on the most dangerous family in Southern California but bringing down the drug lord they're in bed with too.
His name bring bile to my throat. Not because he ordered the hit on my life. The man makes me sick, makes fire course through my veins for all the damage he’s done to Drago—his son, my love, the father of my children.
Sins may be committed in the name of justice—because I will save my future husband. I will save my family from the devil they share DNA with. And I will save my badge from the disgrace placed upon it.
In the end, he will know he’s crossed with the wrong woman. I will bring that man to his knees if it’s the last thing I do.“I’m coming for you.”
